Black not printing on a 3520 Deskjet

I have an HP 352O Deskjet hooked to my Macbook. When I went to print today, the first page I printed was fainter than normal, and after that it wouldn't print in black, except for a dark line I have in my letterhead, which it printed as a very faint gray. I have tried cleaning printerheads, aligning, changing the black ink cartridge, test pages, unplugging to reset, and everything else I can think of. Help! Thanks in advance.

Hi DocWard,


I see that you're having problems with black ink printing.  I would take a look at the document below.

Let me know how it goes.
